Hello! I’m Luke Abbott.

I’m a musician and former music teacher, with a background primarily in bluegrass and old-time styles—singing, banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and a few other instruments. (See my music page to see and hear me play.)

In mid-2016 I released an online practice tool called Strum Machine, which has been such a joy to work on over the years and continues to be my main focus.

I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. Notable things I was a part of there include my 2010 solo album, 10+ years with my family’s ToneWay Project (plus our family band), and two episodes of Trading Spouses (from 2004) that some people don’t seem to forget… 😉

I now live in San Luis Obispo with my wonderful wife, and am working full-time on Strum Machine.

Be well,
